JAWA is a motorcycle manufacturer founded in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1929 by Frantiek Janeek, who bought the motorcycle division of Wanderer. The name JAWA was established by concatenating the first letters of Janeek and Wanderer. In the past, especially in the 1950s, JAWA was one of the top motorcycle manufacturers and exported its 350 (Prk) into over 120 countries. Another famous model in the 1970s was the 350 Californian. It appeared in the typical black and red coloring from Californian beaches to New Zealand. After 1990, there was a significant loss of production. A successor company was formed in 1997 in Tnec nad Szavou, continuing the name as JAWA Moto.
